Autumn challenge with HM

Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a lovely weekend with lots of crafty time, though I know for many of you crafty time is during the week and the weekend is for family time, but for me, the weekdays never seem to have enough time in them for crafts, so I am grateful for my weekends.

Today the card I am sharing with you was created for a challenge with House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge.  This weeks challenge is to make a card with an autumn/harvest theme.
This card made me think again of all our local farmers, who put so much work in to the harvest.  We are lucky to have them!!  

I've used the A2 Card Creator dies by Spellbinder.  I haven't gotten tired of them yet, and am still enjoying experimenting with them.  So easy to make pretty, mailable cards with these dies.  The image is a House Mouse Happy Hoppers stamp called "an apple a day".

I hope you too will dig out one of your autumn/harvest themed HM stamps and play along with us in this challenge at House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, as usual there is a sweet treat prize available to a random winner.


  1. This card is just adorable and terrific for this theme. It's funny that you used the A2 Card Creator today because I just ordered that and it came in on Saturday. I'm dying to put it to good use, so I may be casing you a bit today. Those apples look good enough to eat. All around nice card.
